Carlo Ancelotti won a league and FA Cup double in his first season as Chelsea boss in 2009-10 but was sacked at the end of the following campaign despite a second-place league finish.
The sack of the Italian after the final game of the season at Everton surprised many in the world of football but Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he wasn’t surprised.
According to Lampard, the sack didn’t surprise him because things like that happen in elite football.
